post racial? >> they are an idiot. there is a big debate about this when obama was selected by the democrats but we are beyond thinking about issues of race. so even the presence of all all, and the family raises racial questions for some people. so on the way to be post racial but it is fair to say that we are not now. >>host: do you have a relationship with president of, now? >>guest: no. t. levin. her most recent book former chairwoman here is the
voters and 93% of black voters. remains a real question why the democratic nominee can hold the obama coalition together but the republican party is right to be reexamining the relationship with minorities. finally, lesson four, don't ignore the data. the polls matter and more are right than wrong. though public polling consistently showed the president ahead, the romney campaign sin veerly believed that romney would win. why? they assumed it would be wider and older than it was. the enthusiasm numbers favored them but they didn't have enough voters. many republicans bought in to an alternative polling universe. created by some media pollster master mind to depress republican voting. in 2016, much of the emphasis of both parties to match and improve on the obama campaign's data-driven technological juggernaut and a lesson of 2012, don't ignore the data available to anyone with a computer. >>> second bucket, known as the second-term curse. american presidents successfully win re-election to have a rough ride in years five through eight thanks to legislative overreach, sometimes souring
much lower on long obama supporters and democrats in general than is typical for that kind of cross party opposition. the bigger issue was among independent voters, among the middle of the electorate. you would suggest an unappealing candidate. it was not just that they were not excited about him, they actively did not like him. most of the time when people have to cook a coin, they will say using ok. that was a big problem for him. some people would say it took him longer to tackle the issue over the summer than was ideal. that may have been a reflection of the obama campaign efforts in the early part of the summer to continue to cast him in a negative light. hasted advertisements very early showing class issues and his wealth. whether that was a big issue is hard to know. i do not think the mitt romney campaign did a lot to tackle the issue early on. i think some of its was traveling overseas and talking about the olympics and things that did not do a lot to overcome some of the questions or doubts that people have. now his favorability ratings did improve after the convention. ev

republicans and the far left in mr. obama's party. the president met with senate majority leader harry reid this afternoon and talked with speaker boehner to begin anew that eort to reach compromise. >> averting this middle-class tax hike is not a democratic responsibility or republican responsibility. with their foes the american people have determined that governing is a shared responsibility between both parties in this congress laws can only pass with support from democrats and republicans, and that means nobody gets 100 percent of what they want. lou: there are only ten days remaining to the fiscal cliff. president obama headed to value within actually minutes, and members of congress have also gone home for chrrstmas vacation already. in a news conference today, speaker boehner admitted negotiations with the president have, indeed, been difficult. >> until the president on monday, these are my bottom lines. the president told me that his numbs, $1 trillion in new revenues, 850 billion in spending cuts was his bottom-line. he could not go any further. lou: and he didn't. the plan be op
republican support. the expectation would be some democratic support. the white house is still calling for the threshold on tax cuts to be a quarter million. it seems unlikely republicans would sign on the that, and officially president obama is supposed to be remaining here in hawaii through the new year, it seems likely he will be heading back to washington sometimes around when the senate convenes. and in the meantime, just up in the air about what is going to happen. is it going to be a very unmerry cliff-mass? perhaps. >> i feel like we should pause and listen to the best sound in the world behind you. the waves crashing on the beach. >> pretty good. thanks. >>> dana, as you know, the fiscal cliff crisis is bringing out the creative side of the "usa today" editorial board. >> with the president and congress on holiday break, the newspaper's editors decide a holiday poem was in in order. >> we decided it would be a great idea to read some of for you. >> twaz the night before cliff-mas, when all through d.c., not a politician was stirring, they'd decided to flee. their work was not
that democrats are terrible because they took $716 billion from medicare for obama care and what do we want to do? pocket the cuts and add more. our chief demand is entitlement cuts. medicare and social security. >> talk about the debt ceiling and where this is played in to this conversation. that is coming up in february or supposed to come up in february. john boehner made the offer to take it off the table for a year but i want to show what lindsey graham has to say over the weekend on "meet the press." >> the big chance for a big deal is that the debt ceiling. that's when we'll have leverage to turn the country around, prevent it from becoming greece and save social security and medicare and to anybody listening to this program, i'll raise the debt ceiling only if we save medicare and social security from insolvency and prevent this country from becoming greece. >> prevent this country from becoming greece. what is your reaction to that? >> absolute and utter nonsense. this country is not becoming greece. this country -- this country, frankly, has a big unemployment problem. we have a deficit
the national rifle association's opposition to any new gun laws, president obama insists an action is not an option when it comes to protecting children. while democrats and republicans are upset over the massacre in newtown, the country remains polarized on the issue of gun control. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is in washington. we know that some lawmakers came forward and expressed interest in introducing legislation about gun control, but i guess the question is will they really in the new year? >> reporter: it really -- the reaction, especially and even among republicans to the nra idea is sort of muted at best. it's not a lot of enthusiasm on capitol hill for the idea of the federal government stepping in and endorsing the idea of all schools having armed police officers. never mind funding it. listen to a couple of senators, starting with a republican. >> we had an armed guard in columbine. we had an assault ban. none of it worked. we're talking about preventing mass murder from nontraditional criminals. people who are not traditional criminals, who are
-cuttingest democrat in the history of the republic. and the bush tax rates will be replaced by the obama tax rates. so he knows he's in a better position than they are. the question is as the clock ticks down and markets become anxious and capital becomes scarce and people are worried about what's going to happen out there, that the president has to think as much as he'd be better off then -- and, certainly, senator barrasso makes a good point about that -- the president's going to have some gut-check moments while he's out on the golf course and looking at the blue pacific, he's going to have to think can his second-term presidency really begin in the midst of a recession, and is he going to be okay with that? gregg: all right, so the clock is ticking, but there's another clock we're keeping a close eye on. i mean, we're talking about the debt clock. look at that, $16.3 trillion and growing second by second. and the president instead of focusing on cuts, he actually demanded even more spending, new stimulus, additional spending. maybe he doesn't think that $16 trillion is a real problem even though y
on people making more than a million dollars what are the chances that they will go for the obama plan? >> well, it is -- i mean very low that you are -- well, zero that you would get the entire republican caucus. maybe something can happen where you you get some republicans and some democrats but even that seems difficult and i think that it shows how unreasonable the republicans have become. if you cannot even agree to the boehner plan which is only letting taxes go up on people who make over a million dollars a year. is it even 1% of the country. you know, you -- there is -- you are just -- you can't -- how is obama is supposed to such an extremethem? plan. they have gone from being the party of fiscal responsibility used to be their brand so we will never raise taxes on anybody no matter what and i think that obama has actually, look, he gave in on this issue one time and now they are coming back and they will not give even on this small little number of people. and i just -- i think it is going to politically backfire on them eventually. >> chris: it isn't just democrats who feel
means to me the democratic party is a godless party. with the reelection of president obama, the slaughter of innocent unborn babies will continue. we have a president who supports partial birth abortion. but the americans made their decision. they want higher taxes, they want the slaughter of babies to continue and i find it's totally -- i am totally disillusioned with the american people for voting this president back into office. host: in new york. democratic caller. caller: i am in favor of religion and politics, because i believe our whole country has been found the on judicial system. the fact you are not to steal or to murder or to do, you know, thou shall not, the 10 commandments, are based upon the religious system. when you go into court, you have to put your hand on the bible to swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth, so help you god. so absolutely. this is one of the reasons i would like to comment that our country is going to the place where it is now because we are removing those principles, we are removing the principles out of our laws. this is why
at the end. gets programs he gets to cut the military which democrats have been calling for for years and gets to blame republicans for it. >> president obama is optimistic a deal can still be reached but at the same time he acknowledged there might not be time so he scaled back his goals to focus on the middle class tax cut and extended benefits. a democrat said yesterday a larger deal would not be all that hard to reach. >> what we ought to do is take speaker boehner's last offer the president's last offer and split the difference. that would be a package of $2.6 trillion. you couple that with the 1.1 trillion that has been done that would be close to the 4 trillion to stabilize the debt and begin to bring it down. >>> and if no action is taken by the end of the year taxes go up for everyone. 2 million people lose unemployment benefits and automatic spending cuts could kick in. >> have a great christmas eve. >> oo it is time to entertain this. bethany frankel and herp husband of two years announced they are calling it quits. frankel and jason hopy say they are separating. they have
back underway. >> not until after christmas. and wednesday, most likely on thursday. president obama on vacation in hawaii until after christmas has insisted taxes on the wealthy be increased aen one of his democratic allies said today that position should come as no surprise to anyone. >> on taxes, i know it's hard for the republicans, but the president ran on that platform, 250, no tax increases people below, but taxes for people above. he won 60% of the voters said they were for it in the exit polls, including some republicans. >> and of course, if nothing is done by year's end, taxes will go up for everyone, harris. >> harris: steve centanni, thank you very much. new information tonight on the condition of president george h.w. bush. as you may know he's been hospitalized just before thanksgiving with a lingering cough from a bout with bronchitis. and doctors say that president bush is recovering, but he must build up his strength where he can go home. he's 88 years old and undergoing physical therapy to do just that, to build up his energy. however, right now, doctors are not su
to the models used in the newtown shootings. >>> with time running out to avoid the fiscal cliff, democrats and republicans have left the capital for home. for the majority of the country, that means we are going over that cliff. president obama is in hawaii for christmas with his family. before he left he urged congress to adopt a stopgap measure to prevent taxes from rising on people who make less than 250,000 a year. he also asked for a plan to keep providing benefits to unemployed workers. house speaker john boehner is home in cincinnati. he failed to get members of his own party to support his plan b proposal for ending the crisis. speaker boehner says the stalemate and the failure of plan b is the democrats' fault. >> the president -- what the. has offered so far simply won't do anything to solve our spending problem and begin to address our nation's crippling debt. instead he wants more spending and more tax hikes that will hurt our economy. and he refuses to challenges the members of his party to deal honesty with the entitlement reform and the big issues facing our nation. that's w

to try to do that. >> brown: on the same program, new york democrat senator chuck schumer called la pierre tone deaf. >> he blamed everything but guns, movies, the media, president obama, gun-free cool zones, you name it, the video games, he blames them. now, trying to prevent shootings in schools without talking about guns is like trying to prevent lung canger is without talking about cigarettes. >> brown: schumer and others are now urging renewed ban on assault-style weapons, curbs on high capacity ammunition magazines. some republicans have joined in. senator kay bailey hutchison of texas spoke on "face the nation." >> i think we ought to be looking at where the real danger is, like those large clips, i think that does need to be looked at. >> brown: but fellow republican lindsey brame 6 south carolina argued a new ban would not make the country safer. >> the best way to interrupt a shatter keep him out of the schools, if they get in the school have somebody that can interrupt them through armed force. >> brown: connecticut independent senator joe leiberman observed on cnn
of president obama's being elected caused a huge run on ammunition, police departments were almost running out of it. now many democrats think the situation is different because of newtown and the other mass shootings this year, so i guess we're going to find out whether past is prologue. things have -- things may have changed. we're going to have to see how much they have. >> senators kay bailey hutchison and mark warren yesterday segment nauling their willing tons talk about this, and most likely the conversation leading itself to do something about high magazine clips and what is defined as an assault weapon. is the climate right for a modernized assault weapons ban to pass through congress? especially if vice president joe biden and this inter-agency task force with muster enough support for it? >> it may be that there's more interest in a high capacity magazine ban. now, of course, it's interesting to hear a republican like kay bailey hutchison saying she's willing to look at that time. of course, she's leaving the senate. we haven't heard a lot of talk about high capacity megazeenz from

that president obama can provide that he's not provided on this issue. and there's a lot of hearts and minds that have to change in congress. a lot of them republican, and also some democrats. i think it's up to us as citizens if we want to see changes happen, to take off the party label and demand it of our elected officials. a lot of times politicians act because the citizens are demanding it and crying out for it. that's what has to happen on this issue. we have to lead and they will follow. >> i always say our democratic issue -- and it is, it's going to take all of us to do it. and we have to take the politics out of it. elzi, i'll give you the last word. go ahead and go on as long as you want. sorry i cut you off. >> what she described is a microcosm of what's wrong in washington. our elected officials and the president are supposed to be defenders of the second amendment. there's defenders of the constitution. not a lobbying group, but it's the lobbyists who have our government by the throats, not the voters, the lobbyists. you're seeing politicians make decisions based on what they t
